The SEC has not yet announced whether it will make up for the delayed Alabama-LSU game on Saturday, and if so, when it will be played.
Nick Saban said on a radio show on Thursday night that his team is preparing for the rest of the schedule-with Kentucky (November 21), Auburn (November 28) and Arkansas The state (December 5) game was changed.
He said: “To some extent, we have had the opportunity to fight against everyone. This is the season we are about to complete.”
Alabama did not arrange an opponent on December 12, which is the SEC’s make-up date before the SEC Championship game on December 19. LSU plans to strengthen in the game against Florida on December 12. In order to play Alabama State University earlier, one of Alabama’s remaining three scheduled games must be transferred to December 12.
“We can’t control the behavior of others. We can’t control the schedule. We can control our work. So no matter what game we play, no matter what we play, we are ready.” Saban said. “We are trying to keep the players rhythm and routine. This will not cause us serious harm, so that we have not played for two consecutive weeks. We look forward to the opportunity to participate in the game and hope that this week will come.”
Saban stated that the Alabama players are “really looking forward to” attending Louisiana State University this week, and the “Baton Rouge” game was tracked due to COVID-19 infection and contact at LSU It was “disappointed” that it failed to proceed as scheduled.
Saban said: “From the point of view that this will only delay the season, I hate players. We still have to practice this week, and now we have no games. At some point there will be another game in time they will have to Practice. You just need to be positive about it.”
Alabama (6-0) will see another week last week, and since 1978, this will be a vacation for consecutive seasons. Saban said that if the team participated in the game for the last time, he would regard this week as goodbye week. Saturday; instead, he continues to practice normally this week.
Tide practice runs from Monday to Thursday, and will practice again on Saturday instead of playing games. The conference will focus on Kentucky, followed by a typical film conference on Sunday.
Saban said: “We didn’t actually do anything different from usual, and we don’t want the players to do anything different from usual.”
The postponement due to COVID-19 has dealt a heavy blow to college football this week, with 4 out of 7 SEC games cancelled, and Ohio State University’s game against Maryland ranked third.
Saban said on Wednesday that Alabama has not missed a game due to COVID-19 this season and only conducted a positive test earlier this week.
Saban hopes that virus problems occurring elsewhere will stay away from his building.
He said, “Our guys are very good about this.” “One thing I want to emphasize to players today is that people have problems because they become complacent, relax their distance from society, and take care of their personal Bubbles. This is where all these problems are.
“Like any opponent we have played, the thing that may bother our season is that if we don’t pay attention to details, and the steps we have to take to keep our privacy become lax and relaxed. Because if you don’t, You will have a drink among our team, and that will affect our chances of success in the future. Our team is really good at handling these situations, and we just want to keep this forward.”
Saban told the players that they can only visit their families during the break last weekend. However, the freshman recipient Traeshon Holden went to Baton Rouge to visit his friend and LSU recipient Koy Moore.
Saban said that if there is a positive COVID-19 case, or if a weak player on the Alabama roster is contacted for the remainder of the season, Saban said that the team has cross-trained players such as DeVonta Smith, and The horny guard is served by Patrick Surtain. Without a steep learning curve, other positions may be more difficult to fill.
Saban said: “I think this is also a good reason to manage your personal space, so we will not encounter such problems.”
“Complacency in the field can lead to blatant disregard of correct practices. I think complacency off the field can do the same thing, because our biggest enemy at the moment may be this virus.”
